A- Pours a golden-orange color, reminiscent of honey. A big, fluffy, almond-colored head forms, leaving very nice lacing down the glass.
S- Definately sweet smelling. Citrusy, but not the typical citrus profile found in an IPA. Candied grapefruit rind, oranges, and meyer lemons come through in the nose. Mild alcohol presence with sweet, resiny pine notes in the background.
T- Candied oranges, citron, and grapefruit with a sturdy malt backbone. Caramelized sugar. More pine in the taste than in the nose, but certainly not overwhelming. I didn't get any distinct cream notes from the lactose, but there's definately a big sweetness that works very well with the hops.
M- The head that first formed was softer than any head I've ever noticed on a beer. Medium body, but leaning towards the full-bodied side with a clean, dry finish.
D- Pleasant and extremely well balanced. Not too bitter and not too sweet with a good hop profile.

Pours a dark gold with full off white head. Aroma is nice with some fruity citrus hops, a touch of bread, and some sweetness from the lactose sugars. Not a fan of alcohol showing itself in IPA's and there is a ton present here, makes it hard for me to notice much else in the flavor like the citrus, florals, or sugars. A creamy mouthfeel. Overall, maybe a result of my personal preferences but the alcohol presence in this was a killer for me. I typically stay away from any (I)IPA that is 10% abv or greater because of the heat they can bring, but gave this a chance because of the inclusion of the lactose sugars had me curious. Bad choice on my part, not a fan at all and dumped most of my bottle.
